Facilitation Skills for Project Managers by Dr. James T. Brown

August 17, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Facilitation is a core competency that is frequently taken for granted. It is assumed that a group of smart, dedicated people can meet together and produce great results. Often that is not the case because of a lack of facilitation skills.

Good facilitation involves the integration of process and people through planning and real time guidance. Ever increasing technological and organizational complexity requires project managers to be more adept at bringing divergent groups together to produce high-quality decisions and plans.

Objectives/Agenda of Event

This course will enable attendees to effectively perform the following:

1) Communicate why facilitation skills are required
2) Explain the role of the facilitator
3) Make use of effective facilitative tools
4) Plan and execute a facilitation session
5) Identify group dynamics and apply techniques to maximize positive outcomes
6) Manage challenging group members and situations
7) Create long lasting agreements
